Rumble Strips Recommended For County Hwy TC At State Hwy 26

The Fond du Lac County Highway Traffic Safety Commission will be recommending rumble strips be installed on County Highway TC at Sate Highway 26 to remind drivers of an upcoming stop sign. The commission this week heard from the family of a Marquette, Wisconsin man who was killed in a September 2015 traffic accident when his car was hit by a semi at the intersection. Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says the 20-year-old man was not distracted and did nothing wrong. Since then there have been other injury accidents at the intersection and last month 68-year-old Teresa Harmsen of Brandon died after suffering injuries in an accident at the same intersection. The decision about rumble strips has been forwarded to the Highway Committee. It’s hoped the rumble strips will make drivers more aware of other traffic at the intersection.
